If you are commuting to the class, you may bring your own lunch from home, or purchase catered lunch online at time of registration.

 

On Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, TeenPact offers Evening Sessions that give students the opportunity to relax and fellowship with like-minded peers in a more casual environment. Students play games, participate in small groups, enjoy a time of worship, and are challenged by a message from the Class Director. Evening Sessions are an integral part of the TeenPact experience, allowing students to combine the academic emphasis in class with a spiritual focus on students’ relationships with God and one another. We often like to say, “TeenPact is so much more than what happens at the capitol!” Parents are invited as well.

 

Parents are welcome and encouraged to stay and observe the Four Day class. We love having parents learning right alongside their student! If you’re unable to stay for the class, please join us for graduation on Thursday beginning at 1:00 p.m. During graduation, students participate in a short mock legislative session, hear speeches from the elected officials, hear a charge from the Program Director, receive graduation certificates and much more!

Students who are not able to stay at Black Lake may join us for evening events. Contact Washington State Coordinator, Karissa Sears, for more details.
